HYDRO PLANER.....




Good morning all of my Friends, and Modelers..when i was commissioned to make a submarine, for one of the prestigious institution of my Nation, the main demand was from the officials that it must be transparent.. so, i made it all from acrylic sheets.. after that i made lots of submarines, in various scales, from dynamic to static.. but none of them was for me.. so, now i decided to add some great machines to my own craft collection, i decided to make some good submarines for me.. when we thinks about a submarine many criteria comes in to play.. and its all true.. but, here i am making this submarine with simplest ideas, and havent used any complicated stuffs including the WTC or hydraulics...

this craft is not a copy of any craft.. its based on my own design.. still i retained the shape of some older craft.. she is 24 inches long, yes to operate with my other crafts... she is powered by a simple 7.4 Volt ECM, and can operate her about 3 hours as submerged.. after completion of my prvious projects of submarine, i noticed a fascinating thing that it was too difficult to notice the sub, when submerged.. at swimming pool it was ok, as we can see through the clear water, but at lake it was too hard to find one.. so, i decided to make one without any submerging ideas.. but, still this one dives once, and its natural buoyancy keeps her's attitude..

here i starts from foam board.. making a submarine from the foam board is very practical, as the foam board has its own natural buoyancy,
so that we can adjust the attitude simply..

thank you Sam.. its too hard to walk or bend.. so, i gently drops in to shallow angles of lake, on my knees, and shot video from a circling orbit.. because controlling the TX and camera simultaneously is tougher job.. from here you can see how simple is to make one..  Salute

Yes Roopesh, very easy to make one, for you   Giggle  And compared to your other projects this is nothing for you! But for me, these are small wonders and I truly honestly admire your skills boss  Salute I hope to God and pray full recovery in the shortest possible period of time my dear friend.

Sam, you are wrong.. we can simple see the steps as i posted.. whats the complication here..?  material is foam board.. anyone can get a simple brushless motor as i fixed.. and two micro servo.. an ESC and a battery pack.. done.. please do not think its all tough.. the only thing that we need is interest.. and i know you are a nice modeler..  and a million thanks for your blessings.. still no time to think about me myself.. lots more to do in modeling.. thank you..

Hehe, liked the way you made it simple  Bow If I make one, it probably will submerge once and for all  Giggle But I will some day give it a try when am back to my beloved homeland. I honestly didn't wanted to remind you of the pain you are going through, but felt sad when you mentioned you still have trouble bending  Sad And I admire your attitude towards tough times. "When the going gets tough, the TOUGH gets going" Keep'em coming sailor!
